In order to promote proper healthcare in the country, the Senate President, Godswill Akpabio, disclosed plans by the National Assembly to establish an ultra-modern medical centre for senators, members of the House of Representatives and staffers of the federal parliament.

Akpabio made this known on Thursday, in his address to welcome his colleagues back to the chamber after observing the Eid-El-Kabir holiday.

He specifically said the planned hospital would be constructed in such a way that it would be accessible to all the lawmakers and staffers of the national assembly for their health challenges.

“In this our second legislative year, it is our plan to establish a state-of-the-art medical facility in close proximity to us to serve the distinguished senators, honourable members, National Assembly staff, and our esteemed guests.

“This initiative aims to provide functional and effective healthcare for all,” he said.

He listed the passage of twenty-five bills as part of the achievements of the tenth senate in its first legislative year.

Some of the bills, according to him, are the South-East Development Bill, Northern Development Bill, Old National Anthem Bill and Death Penalty for Drug Traffickers Bill.
